Meet Gary Richardson

Gary Richardson’s a regular player at UCB and the Annoyance Theatre (he’s a frequent performer in the latter’s Holy Fuck Comedy Hour). He’s recently played a nurse in Natasha Rothwell’s episode of Netflix’s The Characters, Chef Benjamin Noodles on The Chris Gethard Show, the brother of “what is not a sex doll, but indeed his sister” in IFC’s Video Frogs, and an improv student in Mike Birbiglia’s new movie, Don’t Think Twice.

I messaged Gary about doing an email interview for Sketchpad Comedy, but he insisted we meet up and talk in person. While I was in NYC for the Del Close Marathon, we met up at the Skylark Bar in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood and recorded our chat on my iPhone. In this interview mainly for me, disguised as an interview for you all, we talk about pursuing comedy and…well, that’s it, cuz why would we talk about anything else.

*At 20:41 there’s a jump in the audio because we moved inside.
